I was looking for a simple, cheap and efficient plug-in to manage a library with few documents in (typically less than 50).
With Memphis, I am very satisfied. There are still few functions (not main) which do not work yet, but I am confident that these issues will be fixed soon.
Last week, I found a bug. Less that 30 minutes after, the developer has proposed me a workaround until a new releaseis available. I have really apreciated this reactivity.
I am sure that if the developer can continue to be focused on, this plug-in will be a must-have very shortly.
Let's try it!
After installing it took a little tinkering to get this plugin to do what I wanted it to do but with one exception all is working well.
Would have given 5 starts but there seems to be some issues with previews, etc.
I've got Memphis set up and it is so nice to have more control of the files than I did with the plugin I had used to embed the files in posts/ pages. Now I can easily update the files and even see which ones I updated. I really didn't like having my files in the mess of the Media Library on WordPress. So this is much easier to deal with.
I would like a quicker way to pull the links together. Right now I'm still going through one by one and getting the link for each file's URL. Ideally, I'd be able to make a quick index page with all the files in a folder. But, at least the links won't change once I do get the page up.
I'm using this for an ASCII art gallery. I really needed a way to keep the files as plain text but viewable from my site. I used to just upload txt files and then link them. Pretty much what I'm doing now really. But, it will look a lot fancier with the plugin. (Just need to add image files to the description).
Does what it is supposed to do, and looks good doing it.
Issues that came up in 3.0 were addressed and users supported very quickly. The King of Nothing was more than patient with users who could not always articulate the problem.
Both the plug in and support are very very good. I will give the 5th star once the last issue is resolved.
I've just started using this plugin, and it's really great! I think with some future updates it will definitely be worthy of that fifth star.
Things I love about it
1. It looks good on the front end. Unlike many plugins, you can tell this developer knows what looks good, not just what works.
2. There's a really cool preview feature. With each document you can write a description, but the user can also click a preview tab and see a preview of the document. Wonderful!
Opportunities for improvement
1. Once batch upload comes out of beta, it should be good. I had some problems with being able to upload large zip files, but that could be server related on my side...not sure.
2. The admin screens could be a bit more polished, but overall not bad.
3. Needs integration with cloud services. Along those lines, it would be good to have an upload system like the media one built into WordPress so we can just drag and drop multiple files.
4. Unless I'm missing it, I don't think there's yet a way to do bulk editing.
I love it so far!
While I'm just getting started, I can definitely say this is exactly the plugin I was looking for. My biggest surprise is that the author isn't charging for this.
We've been using this plugin since it came out. While it's not 100% perfect, it does a good job of allowing groups of documents to be stored together.
The developer is responsive, but understandably short on time (he's a university student).
We've investigated other document management plugins, but nothing is as good as Memphis Docs (mDocs). With some fine-tuning, mDocs could become a very respectable high-quality Premium plugin.
We plan on continuing to use it.
Also, as an unexpected bonus, all the PDFs and media files stored in mDocs can be indexed by searchWP. This is very very good. This allows our search results to include matching queries from text inside media files.
Very cool but I would like to be able to add some documents stored in the cloud (google drive, dropbox...)
This plugin is exactly what you need to manage large number of documents. I am using this with WP Multisites and works perfectly. Although it does have a few bugs here and there (batch upload doesn't work for me so I have to add files manually) but once it's up and running it works great!
